I recently needed to re-tip a few "beater" cues and I was looking for a tip that was in the medium hardness range, inexpensive and durable.
On the recommendation of Cowboy Bob from American Cowboy Billiards, I bought some Triumph Medium pool cue tips. They are a pressed tip, pre-domed, with an integral fiber backing plate.
I was pleasantly surprised at the results. They installed easily, shaped well and played great. Feel and spin rates, at least IMO, are close to those of the Moori Medium pool cue tips I use on my "good" shafts. They experience negligible mushrooming and require minimum care for a medium tip.
Has anybody else ever tried these? I'd welcome any opinions pro or con, just to make sure it's not just my imagination.
While I do believe in spending the bucks for premium tips for my "good" cues, these just seemed like a great value for my beater and loaner cues.

I haven't tried them, but I'd be curious to know how they are for durability. If they play similar to a Moori medium cue tip and last long enough I might try them as well on some bar cues.

Try a Talisman medium tip or maybe even a Triangle (ask them to press it first)

I played with them years ago. They are a great pool cue tip for the money. If not for laminated pool cue tips, they would still be my tip of preference.
